Does the Queen hold a drivers license and did she pass a test? What happens to the hundreds of boxes of chocolate people send Her Majesty on her birthday? These questions and more are answered in a practical miscellany of the royal family. Interest in the royal family is inexhaustible people are curious about what they wear, drink, and do. This perfect companion to the royals' never-ending soap opera reveals all, from where the best places are to go to see the royal family to such details of tradition as the correct days and hours when it is permitted to fly a flag above Buckingham Palace. Including fascinating facts on abdication, birthdays, Christmas, dining, equerries, fashion, garden parties, hairdressers, insignia, the Jewel House, Kensington Palace, liveries, maids of honor, nannies, orbs, protection squads, the Queen’s piper, racing, Snowdon, tartans, the Union Jack, Queen Victoria, weddings, the x-ray machine at Buckingham Palace, yachts, and Zara Phillips, this is an unstoppable, unbeatable little guide to the British monarchy.
